Remember Me ..the new Michael Palin Ghost Story on BBC 1 looks good and a great cast aswell ! Looking forward to seeing it this weekend I Wondered why the BBC havnt done (i may be wrong ) a Ghost story for this Christmas and this new 3 part drama may be the reason !

It is a great shame Mr. Palin didn't veer more towards acting rather than travel documentaries. Ive always found him a natural character actor.

Looking forward to Remember Me.

He was interviewed by Ross the other day and he said this was his first proper dramatic part.
He's waited a long time to choose the right part for him to start off with.

I'm looking forward to this too. Love a good ghost story. Here's hoping this is a good one.

Should be with Mr Palin in it. I used to live near him and we often crossed paths in the newsagents. Nice man.

Michael Palin said he always wanted to do a Ghost Story part and when actors want to do the part so much they usually play it so well !

My TV mag did an interview with him when he was on location filming this.

'This is unprecedented. It's a February night in Scarborough, where the BBC is shooting Remember Me. We're lingering in a seafront hotel that's also the show's production base, and here's Michael Palin.

We're scheduled to sit down with him tomorrow morning, but tonight... ? Tonight he wants to know if we fancy a drink, because he's going to the bar. We do, he does,and then he sits down for an off-the-clock chat - about travel, The Beatles, Scandi drama (he loves it) ...

It has to be restated: this is unprecedented. Famous people do not do this. But then - and he won't thank us for restating this cliche - Michael Palin is not just famous. He's famously nice.

When we catch up with him the following say, he shrugs it off. "You'd just arrived, we're all staying in the same hotel, it was nice to have a chat"




I'm looking forward to this as well. Sounds like something the Beeb would put on at Christmas. Wonder why they didn't keep it til then.

i.e. the same old faces that always crop up.

I must in the minority as I thought the trailer for this looked pretty poor. Michael Palin...jeez. Palin may be the nicest man in the Universe, but I'm not convinced that at this stage in his life he's known as anything other than 'Michael Palin'. It has more than a whiff of stunt casting about it.

Considering how great he, and Robert Lindsay, were in GBH I think he's being overly modest there. He was always the best actor of the Pythons, I think.

Definately be giving this a go. Got a lot of time for him as a performer and a man.

That would depend on if you liked it or not. Why would you watch it again at christmas if you didn't enjoy it the first time?

Depending on how it turns out, probably.

I am too impatient to wait until Christmas to watch it, but I do love a good ghost story at Christmas, so if nothing else is being broadcast, I might watch this again.

I have to say, whatever that was rising up on the beach in the trailer was giving me goose bumps.

I'll be watching this too due to the good cast. Good to see Jodie Comer get a big role along with Michael Palin and Mark Addy, she was great in the last series of "My Mad Fat Diary".

I have reservations about watching this as Michael Palin looks a bit hammy in the trailer. Hope it's a decent story at least and better than that Christmas ghost drama with Vanessa Redgrave which was disappointing.

Did he say he was 80 odd? He looks a bit young for playing an 80 odd year old. A lot of the cast from Trollied in this.
